A Day Inside & So Much to be Thankful For...




I am sure you all know about the fires devastating several areas in southern California. Well the air has been thick with a smokey haze as a result, so much so it burns your lungs and throat with each breath. And so I decided, the girls and I would stay locked up in the house today. I usually take my Mondays and designate them as "Laundry Day" anyway. This is the day where my my main goal is getting rid of the mountain of laundry our family of four seems to make every week. So today we did a lot of laundry, colored, watched Jungle Book (thanks Grandpa!) and both girls took a VERY GOOD 3 hour nap in the afternoon (Score for me)!! As all seemed pretty peaceful in my little house it hit me... right now there are people who have been forced out of there homes, not sure if they will ever return. There are people who have already seen there houses, belongings and memories burn to the ground. People have been hurt and lives have been forever changed. Wow!.................... So as I go on with my "little" routines of life and even at times get frustrated with the day-to-day chores and responsibilities of being a mom/homemaker I must remind myself how much I have to be thankful for. My house is not in any present danger, my family is well and safe and I know that this is not the case for some people tonight. I truly grieve for these people and so my thoughts, sympathy and prayers are with all those who are being affected by the fires. God be with you...
